SummaryJustiniano had struggled with schizophrenia, but, according to his family, he had never been violent. He was driving but weaving, clutching his chest, and looking panicked. Worried he might be having a heart attack, a citizen called 911. Trooper Walker responded and approached Justiniano, who immediately charged him, Walker said he saw Justiniano wielding a pen and ordered him to put it down. “You want it, you're going to have to kill me,â€ù Justiniano replied, according to Walker. He lunged at the officer repeatedly, forcing Walker to use chemical spray. Walker said Justiniano kept charging, yelling he would kill him. Walker said he had no choice — he fired two rounds. Justiniano, who was still struggling with police as they tried to handcuff him, was pronounced dead later that morning.
